I’ve never been a big fan of Seether, but Holding On o Strings Better Left To
Fray is a very good album. Much better than any other Seether album so far, if
you ask me. I wouldn’t have even given the album a thought, then I heard “Fur
Cue”, and “Here And Now”. I had already heard the lead single, “Country Song”, but that is more catchy than anything.
As I listened to the lyrics of each track, it was like looking into Shaun Morgan’s
soul. You can tell people have come and gone from his life, and some have left
quite an imprint. His lyrics show that he has a heart that’s been cracked and
broken more than once.
My personal favorite on the track, is honestly his cry for help from whoever he was going through hardship with. “Here And Now” shows its meaning in every lyric. He shows he’s worn and torn from fighting by saying, “I’m wilted and faded after all. Too strung out and burnt out to be half the man I could be.” He also states he misses them by saying. “Memories wear me out, and this seems too complicated when all I wanted is a part of you.” In the final chorus.
While every song on the album is well written, “Here And Now” is the only one that really jumped out at me. Others are catchy, such as “Country Song”, and “Tonight”. Absolutely none of them are bad, but if I had to name one, I guess I’d say “Roses” is the worst track on the album, for no reason at all.
Definitely listen to this album. I give it five stars.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
